Will 2005 lobster claw 987 wheel work on 2003 base 986

I recently bought a 2003 base Boxster which has 17” wheels. Like the look of 18” “lobster claw” wheels on the 2005 Boxster. Will that wheel work on the 2003 car—the offset and wheel width is different. Thanks-

I don't know why not. I'm running 19" Cayman Lobster Claws on my 2004 986.2 S. I doubt there's enough of a difference to matter.

What is the offset difference between your existing wheels and the 18s?

My Boxster was running 996 Carerra 5 spokes with big spacers when I bought the car. The Cayman wheels are much closer to my stock offset and I think they look better anyway.

Thanks for the reply. I, obviously, am not up on all this. Was wondering if spacers would be needed. They are an additional expense I would like to avoid. I’ll research more.
